Problem with parallel working of several users on XWiki pages etc

Hi everybody,

i’ve got the following problem when using XWiki, that as soon as several users work on the wiki in parallel, the CPU usage due to editing, saving, reloading pages here makes this hardware run full and the xwiki service is no longer accessible.

Is there a setting that can be set to optimize the wiki performance and counteract this behavior of service crashes and inaccessibility?


You can find in the documention the memory and CPU requirements.

To give you an idea about what you need to run XWiki on, XWiki SAS has the following configuration for its cloud instances:

AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6386 SE
cpu MHz : 2800.000
cache size : 2048 KB
  • 16GB disk size by default

You can also check the performance documentation if you wish to tune you installation’s settings.

Hope that helps.

@mleduc many thanks for your quick reply

the server hardware running XWiki is oversized (more than the minimum requirements described in the documentation), only these problems occur as soon as more activities/interactions take place in the wiki at the same time.

I thought someone might have a similar problem

Maybe someone has an idea to solve this issue

You just need to find out what is taking CPU. See which could help. Beyond that you’ll need a profiler or set up Glowroot (Monitoring (

You can also check if you don’t have panels taking a long time to display. Generally speaking you need to find out what page is taking long to display, then verify what content you have put in these pages (or in displayed panels). If you have done custom dev or installed extensions also check if they could be the problem.
